Electronic funds transfer at point of sale (EFTPOS ) is an electronic payment system involving electronic funds transfers based on the use of payment cards, such as debit or credit cards, at payment terminals located at points of sale.

EMV is a set of international standards that defines the interoperability of transactions between chip based payment devices such as cards, key fobs and smart phones with payment acceptance terminals across the international payments landscape.

EMV enables payment transactions through the introduction of cryptographic functions and dynamic data. The cryptographic functions allow the terminal or issuer to verify the authenticity of the card. The dynamic data is unique to each transaction and cannot be replicated. This devalues the transaction data in flight and reduces the risk of counterfeit fraud.

The flow of an EMV transaction is significantly different than for a magnetic stripe transaction. Unlike a magnetic stripe transaction, there is a considerable amount of communication that occurs between the card and the terminal in an EMV transaction. To complete a chip transaction, the card and the terminal complete a series of steps:

Mars Data Systems has tremendous experience in developing EFT-POS application for Banking like EMV,DCC and etc same way for non-banking application like Loyalty,ePurse,Petroleam and etc.

System Architecture

MARS PIN Security Key Injection Software is used for injecting keys TPK into the PAX / VanStone Terminals. The system encrypts the TPK with Password Key and on top of that Transport key is used for next level encryption. The final encrypted key is stored securely with all the check values into file for further usage.

At the time of injecting to Terminal, system decrypts the TPK with password key. Password key never stored in anywhere, however only password key check value is stored to verify the password key.

Encouraging continuous patronage of loyal Customers by rewarding them with gift / discount coupons is the basic concept of any Loyalty System. Currently, business establishments are launching such Loyalty Schemes, which involves:

• Planning the Scheme

• Executing it by printing pamphlets for publicity, printing the required gift / discount coupons etc.

• Manually distributing the coupons to regular Customers at every outlet

• Collection of all the Coupons by the Customers to redeem the benefits

The entire process is very laborious and time consuming. The Loyalty System introduces an automated way of promoting Loyalty, at the same time boost organizational sales by way of issuing Loyalty Cards, which is a novel idea.

Instead of the long process of printing coupons and issuing them to individual Customers, and the Customers accumulating the coupons and then redeeming benefits, Loyalty Cards which carry all details with respect to a Scheme, can be issued to Customers. Bonus points are awarded to the Customers for every purchase of a pre-defined amount and all the details of the purchase are recorded on the backend system against customer account. Customers can redeem the benefits at any of the authorized outlets of the business establishment that launched the Scheme.

LS owned by a Loyalty Service Provider enables a Scheme to be common across two or more Clients. Bonus points gained at one Client outlet would be redeemable at the other Client’s outlet.

The Loyalty System is an easy to use, extremely convenient system designed to work either as a standalone system or interface with the existing Card Systems.

The new loyalty program will need to incorporate unique tactical offers and value added benefits, including rewards for specific outlet visit frequency and high spend levels. To instil customer motivation, the program must deliver a high degree of “wow factor” and instant gratification such as surprise awards, instant free gifts and money saving coupons, as well as rewards carefully targeted to match the profile of the individual loyalty customer.

Loyalty System is a plastic card/microchip-based consumer loyalty program, which is based upon the accumulation and redemption of loyalty points through a wide and diverse range of collection and redemption channels. Designed to reward retail purchases. Incorporating the above requirements, Mars-Data proposes a Loyalty System that supports Single as well as Multiple purses.

The following pages give details about the System, its requirements and functionality.

Key Features

Loyalty System can function:

• On a global one Merchant level

• On a Group of outlets of a single Merchant level.

• On a specific outlet level of a Merchant

Loyalty system supports RFM.

• Recency:

 A gift coupon for visit between x and x time (Happy hour).

• Frequency:

 Option to track Frequency of visit for Generic purse as well as private purse application at both Merchant and outlet level.

 Option to provide free coupons/ extra points on the nth visit.

• Monitory:

 Gift coupon if Total value of single purchase exceeds ‘xxx’ Amount.

 Gift coupon if Total value of multiple purchases exceeds ‘xxx’ Amount.

 X% of bill value can be printed as a coupon for a discount against next purchase

Loyalty System rewards points based on the Scheme and generates coupons as well as can points based on the RFM.

System facilitates Single and Multiple coupons printing through the option of variables. Coupons can also be generated based on the Purchase History of the individual Customers.

 PIN will only be used for redemptions. In addition to this PIN can also be set for any other Transactions like Purchase etc.

 An online adjustment of points at the time of redemption will occur on the generic as well as private purse.

Point’s value from the Loyalty System: All points will have the same generic “accumulation value” and “redemption value”:

 Common value of each point = 0.1x Amount Spent

 Standard accumulation value = 1% of spend value.

Merchants have the ability to award multiples of the standard “accumulation value” e.g.:

 Triple points = 3 points for each 10(Amount Spent)

 10 fold points = 10 points of each 10 (Amount Spent)

Terminal can be used to complete the Sale transaction either by Private, Corporate, Small business smart cards. Terminal communicates with the Pump controller to get filling details of the transaction and on confirmation, terminal communicates online to Authorization system in Head office over GPRS/LAN for approval. During approval Auth system refers the Terminal, Site and card database to provide approval based on the restriction set to the card and store this transaction in the terminals.

The Revalue transactions are used for private card topup. Centrel revalue transactions are used for small business card to topup. The Sale, Revalue, Offline and etc transactions are stored in the same batch in the Terminal and uploaded to the Batch collection system at the End of Day. On successful Upload of transaction batch, BCS will download the full HOT Card list to the terminal along with terminal configuration parameters.

System Architecture

Based on the any International School requirement Mars Data Systems committed to propose the School Automation with Student tracking system along with ePurse functionalities.

All the student and staff are issued ID cards with RFID & MiFare combined technology on single cards. Whenever student enters to school or bus the proposed system tracks these information to locate the student with the help of RFID readers in school main gate and MiFare reader at Bus and Library, pool and other locations wherever single entry. An RFID interrogator at the main gate detects students arriving in the morning . This Identification is stored in a central database, and various actions are then taken. The actions can be sending SMS message to the parents informing them of the safe arrivals to school or absent student only. However parents can browse the school web site to identify the child tacking details at any time. This message transmission is done automatically via the in-built software, and is available for viewing in a sent-log form for later use. It also eliminate the cash purchase at school like canteen, sports items and stationary shops and etc.

The computers required for transmission, interrogation and connectivity to the internet for bulk transmission of email or SMS are maintained at the school campus or web hosting location.
